I believe this act should be re-thought and I also believe that this act should have backing on what property they take and why they take it. I believe this is an act abused by many law agencys around Michigan. The Huron Undercover Narcotics team relies on this
for funding as does many Agencys. They admit this is what keeps them alive (finding soon to be posted on http://www.freewebs.com/antihunt/) I'M asking people to sign this so we can hopefully get this act looked over. That way these wrong doing won't happen to many others in and around Alpena County and Michigan. I Think taking and holding some one belongings for ransom is almost a criminal act in its self. Its almost like a group of people robbing you with ski masks and telling you there going to sell it for more guns for
there gang, But totally legal!! I'M not asking for the ending of the act Just for it to be looked over and for them to have backing on why there taking what there taking. I think they should give you more days to file claims because most of the time the claimant is locked up. I also think the agencys should give proof on why the item is being taken under the Seizure and Forfeiture Act, and backing on why they think the item was claimed in the Controlled Substances Act. They should also hold on to the item
till convicted guilty of the charges and not have you sign the forfeiture act until after the sentencing of the crime. If you agree to any of the above please sign my Online Petition!!

Thanks for your time
